    I have the same car with the problem. Lock and unlock car using your power lock on door. Do this 5 times continuously rapidly. Then start car. This works for me. If it doesn't start repeat process several times before you give up.

most of the time it occurs after replacing a battery but if this occurred out of the blue then something like the transponder has failed

you'll need a professional scan tool and about an hour to diagnose the concern

SOURCE: starter disabled due to theft system

Question? when it does disable it usually will say " starting disabled due to theft system remove key from ignition and wait 3 minutes'. Are you able to start car after the 3 minutes? or it wont period? My car does this alot to but I think its cause you have to unlock the car, get in it, shut the doors and then start the car because mine does it when i open the doors.

It is probably your key. Your key has a resistor pellet and that might have worn down enough to change the resistance and cause your problem. There are 11 different key resistances for this car, when I ordered my extra keys. Hope this helps.

How do u disable a 94 cadillac deville anti theft system


U can bypass it (called the VATS system) but not fully disable it, what is done mimics the key code to fool the VATS module into sending a OK to start signal to the fuel injection computer (called the ECM). go to the web link below for instructions on the bypass.

Starting disabled due to anti-theft system


Almost always the key is not at fault. I know for sure heat changes the resistance of the key but it does not happen as a usual thing you would have to apply physical heat. Contact me at albmahone@yahoo.com

I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.
